Such classic albums as DarkSideOfTheMoon
created their immortal greatness.
Actually, I don't like DarkSideOfTheMoon so much. I prefer UmmaGumma? (first), AtomHeartMother?, and of course the truly immortally great WishYouWereHere?. -- HaskoHeinecke
Recently one of the premium cable channels (ShowTime? maybe?) broadcast TheWizardOfOz. This time, on SAP, they broadcast DarkSideOfTheMoon. I don't have premium cable, so I didn't see it. SAP is a method for broadcasting a second audio program. Usually it is used to broadcast a dub on the main broadcast.
Have a look at: http://www.ameritech.net/users/pinkfloyd/wiz.html for more info on this phenomena. -- MatthewTheobalds
I think it depends on your mood. WishYouWereHere? is incredible, and TheWall? has a sheer incredibleness. But there is something about DarkSideOfTheMoon, I didn't use to like it as much as I do now; however, now, I can really appreciate its sheer overwhelmingness. Fantastic. Too many fake words in that paragraph I fear ; ) -- MatthewTheobalds
Everybody ignores TheFinalCut?
for whatever reason but it's my fave PinkFloyd
album, hands down. All the other albums have at least one track I just do not want to hear and would skip if I had a remote control and wasn't too lazy to use it, 'cept this one. I recently read that you can do the DarkSideOfTheMoon
thing with TheMatrix
too, but it could have been pakhandi rumour.
There's a band that did an excellent reinterpretation of TheWall?
album in bluegrass style, although some of the helicopter and machine noises are replaced with farm noises. They have samples to download at: http://www.lutherwright.com/music.php
The Austin Lounge Lizards did a bluegrass cover of "Brain Damage" which is quite funny to listen to....
has done so many bad stadium concerts that this band his almost forgotten now.
Hardly. As for bad, maybe it's the Gilmour/Waters?/Barrett? gap that some people only like to be on one side of.
